USMC FA-18 Rumour

Post by ukaviation » Fri Oct 03, 2014 3:51 pm

I note both tankers have moved to Sunday departure from Mildenhall.

PS we all need to be grateful of the info we get and respect people's sources.

Thanks Oscar

Does this delay affect just the first wave, or both? Is anything due before darkness falls?

Guys please don't listen to some people I and others really do appreciate the updates, I'm not able to get out and about spotting so I enjoy reading the movement updates, again please don't listen to small minded people.

It's a real shame that one person is able to so quickly destroy an information source. It's not our god given right to be told the minutia of every aircraft movement, and we should be - and are - continually grateful to those who are willing to share information.

I know it can be annoying sometimes to be told an update which may raise more questions than it answers - but conversely would you rather be told nothing at all?

Thanks to all who have kept a sane head - much appreciated :)

I feel sorry for you guys down there waiting, that's why I didn't have a trip down its been a bit of a farce from the start and nothing really carved in stone, at least you should have some moonlight on your side I wonder what the pilots will think to all those flash guns going off. enjoy it guys I look forward to seeing all your pics on here soon.
no offence meant to anyone

regards

For those of you whom haven't taken sarnies about 7 minutes away is a great pub http://www.thechequersinneriswell.co.uk/
that serves the best pint of real ale (Broadside) also the foods not bad at all and fairly cheap, they have Wifi there as well, just a thought :) happy F18 hunting peeps.
